I went to the local dump on my way out this afternoon. The car was full of bags of composting garden waste. Smelled very ripe. I shared the journey with 3 slugs, 1 spider and a host of small flies. The slugs and spider returned home with me. The flies were obviously just hitching a ride. I didn't see them again once I'd dumped the green stuff. The slugs I put out on the bird table. The spider returned to its nest in the rear view mirror. Itsy Bitsy spider only comes out when the car is on the move. She hangs there looking forward through the windscreen rocking along to the ELO soundtrack on the CD player "Mr Blue Sky".
